Wellington County OPP and EMS crews were called out to a barn collapse last night, east of Guelph.

The call came in just before 9 p.m. from a farm on Jones Baseline, Guelph-Eramosa Township.

Two workers in the barn were uninjured but about two-thousand pigs were killed.

Efforts by those on scene, including local farmers, and emergency services crews were able to save about 500 pigs.
